Fossils are essentially the remains of various animals that lived thousands or millions of years back. Once these animals died, they were buried in layers and layers of planet. While their flesh would certainly rot away, the more difficult parts of their body, such as coverings, bones, etc, would remain undamaged between the layers of debris. Currently, all those years later, those bones and also coverings can still be located, intact, as those layers of debris are again uncovered.
